On Monday, Reade had told CNN that she received a bachelor of arts degree from Antioch University in Seattle under the auspices of a "protected program," personally working with the former president of the school to ensure her identity was protected while she obtained credits for her degree. She also said that she was a visiting professor at the school, on and off for five years.
But a spokesperson for the university told CNN that Reade "attended but did not graduate from Antioch University" and that she was never a faculty member, but she did provide several hours of administrative work.
University officials confirmed with former university president Toni Murdoch that no special arrangements existed, university spokeswoman Karen Hamilton said.
An Antioch University official also told CNN that such a "protected program" does not exist and never has.

This looks really bad especially given the fact that she served as an expert witness. With any case there would have been voir dire including a voir dire cross examination. A voir dire cross examination typically would start with challenging her educational qualifications. Plus her apparent fabrication of relevant legislative experience is a mess too. It is sad that her fabrications were not discovered until now and that opposing legal challenges of all of her cases are probably getting fired up right now.

The standard to testify as an expert witness is higher and the desire to prevent a situation like this should point to higher consequences. Though perjury cases may be rare, we might actually see one in this case. Plus any career she might have had as an expert witness is almost certainly over given the accusations.

This guy is a clown.

If you have a legitimate argument or case to make to society, you can present it and let the content speak for itself. You dont need to lazily try to discredit those that disagree with you by instantly crying about bigotry or by making thinly veiled racist assumptions yourself.

You could let the content speak for itself instead of tearing into (shooting) the author (the messenger) as a 'clown'.

I dont know if you meant to or not, but you posted a blog post from a guy who writes an opinion piece on identity politics and basically frames it as "if you disagree with me you're a bigot".... ironic and amusing.

‘Manipulative, deceitful, user’: Tara Reade left a trail of aggrieved acquaintances

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/05/15/tara-reade-left-trail-of-aggrieved-acquaintances-260771

A number of those in close contact with Reade over the past 12 years, a period in which she went by the names Tara Reade, Tara McCabe or Alexandra McCabe, laid out a familiar pattern: Reade ingratiated herself, explained she was down on her luck and needed help, and eventually took advantage of their goodwill to extract money, skip rent payments or walk out on other bills.

It just the standard Democratic response, you know that Gregmal.  Don't agree with me? You're a racist. It's worked for the Democrats for YEARS.

Blacks are starting to wake up the to "Utopia" that the Democratic Party has created for them - the welfare state, the single mother families, etc

The Democrats are absolutely TERRIFIED of the reception Trump is getting from blacks that want to think for themselves. It's awesome to watch.
Watch clips of many of the Trump rallies and focus on all the blacks that attend them. These people know that Democratic Party has failed them
miserably for years.

The Democrats KNOW that if Trump picks up 10 or 15% of the black vote this next election - that Trump will be President again - so the
all out assault begins - because with all time low black unemployment under Trump - Democrats are in big, big trouble.
